"Let me make it clear before I start, Teddy's Cheer Club are not the US equivalent of the UK's Tufty Club or a weekly comedy spot in downtown New York. They are an LA based visceral noise pop (I'm desperately trying to avoid the use of the term shoegazers, damn I've said it now!) band. Like their forefathers The Pixies and My Bloody Valentine before them, Teddy's Cheer Club serve up an intense viscerous wall of guitars over which they pour an oil slick of honey coated, duelling male/female vocals." - UK music site - besttuna.blogspot.com


""the best unsigned band in L.A.""

Like The Pixies and My Bloody Valentine before them, this L.A. outfit utilizes an intense visceral wall of guitars to deliver their pop-rock oriented songs. The term pop has taken on an ugly meaning as of late, but Teddy’s Cheer Club’s music reminds listeners that pop can be meaningful and powerful. The interplay and hooking up of Mike and Audrey’s guitars and voices is deceptively simple and delicately chaotic. When they’re singing in unison or ending a lyric in harmony, you don’t need to discern the meaning of the song to understand and empathize with their message.

Teddy’s Cheer Club has already caught the attention of industry folks. Their songs have been featured several times on artistdirect.com. In 2004, ARTISTdirect dubbed them "the best unsigned band in L.A."

Bio

Teddy’s Cheer Club formed in 2004 in Culver City, California by songwriters Audrey Capotosta (vox/guitar) and Mike Benecke (vox/guitar), with Rob Hume (bass) and Erin Highberg (drums).

Their first self-released 5-song EP became available in January 2005 and quickly sold out its first pressing. Songs from “ep1” have been featured prominently on music websites and blogs, and in the 2006 independent film “The Mostly Unfabulous Life of Ethan Green.” Recently, their song "Let It Go" climbed to #2 on the ARTISTdirect.com indie rock downloads chart, and in 2005 "Signal" was selected as a featured track alongside The Mars Volta and Jimmy Eat World. Summer 2006 saw the release of a follow up, “ep2”, an increasingly complex and unified work produced and recorded at Music Friends Studio (Midnight Movies, GoGoGo Airheart, Mark Trombino) and mastered at Capitol Records.

Radio airplay on stations Indie 103.1, 106.7 KROQ, the RADAR REPORT on XM, and KXLU in Los Angeles, and energetic performances at Spaceland, Silverlake Lounge, the Eagle Rock Music Festival and sundry important LA and OC venues have built a loyal following for Teddy's Cheer Club's inventively melodic hooks and dreamy subtleties.

TCC continues to write new material and perform around Southern California.
